Third Thursdays is an arts, music and culture programme in the centre of Brighton that hosted STUCK in April 2021
STUCK is a video made in 360, projected as a crystal ball hovering above the busy streets of Kensington Gardens. Look up and you will catch sight of a young woman inside a child’s bedroom, testing and retracing the space. Her movements are cyclical, constrained, repetitive, frustrated. She spins, rocks and stretches. At times, the video is disorientating, spinning wildly, at other times she is still, pensive and tired. The sense of scale is distorted through the crystal ball; she is childlike, playful, but also an adult and the video acts like a lens into someone else’s past, their hidden, lived, experience. She is quite literally stuck within the walls of the room, but also seeking a way to move on and out.
